With three players scoring in double figures, the Roland Rangers rolled to a 60-32 victory over the Miami Wardogs Friday night in the second round of the Northeastern A&M High School Invitational Tournament at the Miami Activity Center.
The Wardogs dropped to 0-2 in Boys’ Round Robin play.
They wrapped up the tournament Saturday night against Welch, which slipped to 1-1 with a 32-28 loss to Tulsa Lincoln Christian (2-0).
The 32 points were a season low for the Wardogs, who suffered a ninth straight loss.
“They came out and played at an extremely high tempo and really shot the ball well,” Miami coach Rusty Mercer said.
The Wardogs got points from only three players.
Hayden Delano led the Wardogs with 18 points while Tony Rodriguez scored 12 and Casey Hunter added a field goal.
“We got thumped, but I really thought that we played with some effort,” Mercer said. “We had a more consistent effort for four quarters than we’ve had in a long time.”
Junior forward Caleb Daniel led coach Eddie Lewis' Rangers with 19 points, which included five during a 27-point first quarter.
Senior guards Trey Chambers contributed 10 points and Dougie Webster added seven, along with three from Mathias Etzkorn and a layup by Dakota Weippert, to produce a 27-7 Roland lead in the first eight minutes.
Five points by each Rodriguez and by Delano enabled the Wardogs to battle to a 10-10 draw in the second quarter.
Roland received four points by Daniel and consecutive baskets by Trenton Castleberry, Webster and Chambers to carry a 37-17 margin to the locker room at halftime.
During the third quarter, Daniel scored eight points and Weippert added three, along with a break-away layup by Chambers, to create a 53-27 Roland cushion heading into the fourth quarter.
Five points by Webster and a field goal by Chambers in the final eight minutes accounted for Roland's only points as Miami was held scoreless over the last four minutes of the game.
Along with Daniels' 19-point production, the Rangers received 15 from Webster, 14 from Chambers, eight from Weippert, four from Castlesberry and two from Jamel Adams.
